MD Will Carter said: "We have made a submission to the OFT in writing.
"We have two primary concerns. The first is that Walkers has just under 50% of the salty snacks market. This acquisition will push them over half way. They are already around three times the size of their nearest competitor, KP. "
Walkers will acquire the largest van sales fleet in the country Â 140 vans Â and KP is asking the OFT to consider whether this might influence range, space and visibility Â particularly in independents.
